The song is actually by a Scottish folk duo. The Corries. Well known for 'Flower of Scotland' and 'There Are No Pubs In Kirkintilloch' and others.

Well. Well known to those who listen to such things.

Sounds like the chorus of a song I learned as being German / Austrian in origin:

I am a happy wanderer
Along the mountain track
And as I walk, I love to sing
My knapsack on my back.
Valderee ... Valderaa
Valderee ... Valderaa
Valderee ... Valderaa-ha-ha-ha
My knapsack on my back.

And so on for two or three more verses.
